  • This book presents a theory of abrupt personality change the authors, Flo Conway and Jim Siegleman, call snapping. These changes are described as happening in cults, encounter groups, and other activities involving extreme practices and constant information assault. According to Conway and Siegleman this phenomenon has arisen as a result of the rapid accumulation of information that penetrates our lives on an almost daily basis. Snapping they believe is an information disease. In the book they r [...]


  • This is a great book about cults use mind control and how the mind subjects itself to turn off and function like a machine only responding to pre-programed responses and only think in doctrine. The book also dives into coercive deprogramming which, though highly effective, is illegal and could cause harm during the floating stage. Steven Hassan, the father of voluntary exit counseling that "snapping" was a harsh experience for him has developed methods to promote independent thought without the [...]


  • A dazzling exposé. I found the information on the Divine Light Mission quite helpful for my own personal research.The simplified illustrated version of Thom's elementary catastrophe curve was very reminiscent of illustrated Black Hole theory.



  • I read this book years ago, but it keeps coming back to me. After reading Pilgrim's Wilderness by Tom Kizzia, which was upsetting when you realize how people met and knew this family but SAW what they wanted to see: a wholesome loving healthy Christian family when in reality evil, cruelty, anger existed and rules under the guise of Robert Hale's personal cult


  • This book showed me that the religious conversion experience wasn't supernatural, but rather psychological in nature, common to all religions and pseudo-religions. While the book deals with cults, mainstream religions are tamer versions of the same thing, a difference of degree, rather than kind.


  • The first 20% was fairly good, but the book as a whole suffers from poor standards of journalism. As soon as the authors start talking about deprogramming, bias and hysteria reign. I couldn't make myself finish it. I reached the limit of subjective panic I'm willing to expose myself to.


  • I'm currently reading Snapping and I think it is a wonderful essay of the personality of the mind and its persuasiveness to cults, therapies and sects.
